Krunch will put your reflexes to the test


8:30 PM on 12.22.2012



Aimed at fans of games such as VVVVVV and Super Meat Boy, LeGrudge & Rugged's Krunch is not for the faint of heart. I'm not even sure what genre descriptor to use here, despite having played a bit for myself, but watch this trailer to get some idea.

Though it might initially appear to be a platformer, it isn't -- at least not in the traditional sense. Your character is a floating robot attempting to escape countless rooms that are closing in on it, so there's no jumping. There are, however, lots of dangerous obstacles to avoid bumping into, and your health is constantly draining. Also, boosting further drains your health. Did I mention that this game can be intense?

Krunch is available now on Windows, Mac, and Linux, free of copy protection. Check out the slick website, which also offers a few tunes off the soundtrack, including one from Disasterpeace. I'm unsure how I managed to avoid hearing about any of this until now.

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.more

Just getting over the PTSD of your last visit to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza? Well too damn bad, because it's time to get spooked again. Normally I'd roll my eyes at the idea of a sequel being announced barely three months since t...more
